The Science of Becoming Happier
“The only difference between screwing around and science, is writing it down.” — Adam Savage
2015 is drawing to a close, and I will be thirty-six years old, or young, by the start of the new year. As a retrospect of the past year of 2015, or for the matter, how do I know if I am better today compared to 5 or even 10 years ago?
This question was staring me at my face as I started my journey to be committed to my best life possible. This question was on page 44 of The Five-Minute Journal.
“You don’t, unless you’re keeping track.” — The Five-Minute Journal
The truth is, I am not a person that likes to write journals, hence the habit never quite stuck with me. But as I got older, I often ponder how much have I actually grown as a person, in relation to my girth? I realised that I do not have the answer for the former, although my tape measure has shown me the answer to the latter.
For my journey to becoming happier, I am committing myself to write in the Five-Minute Journal everyday, in the morning and evening. I am committing to my best life consciously; to create more abundance in my life; time to give more gratitude.
What are you committing to in the new year?
